I don't understand why people view Ellenberger so much higher than Pierce? Yea, he may be higher...a couple of spots.
Am I missing something, or did I not drink the kool-aid? He has went....KO loss to Kampmann. 29-28 win vs Jay Hieron. Then KO'd a fading Nate Marquadt who is in no ones top 10 now. He was barley ranked somehow because he beat Tyrone Woodley in strikeforce...Marqaurdt sucks these days. He is a gate keeper to a gate keeper like Kos at the very best.
Pierce has fought right with Hendricks and Kos, basically to Draws.
In my own personal view I have: (UFC only)
I don't care for the fight. But I don't feel they are ranked that far apart.
